Re: Loading Programs from Compilations?

Yes, open tape browser and point to proper program. Works all right for me in Spectaculator. If you have autoload option enabled then first program on tape loads after you opened the tape image. In such case reset the Spectrum, point to your program and type LOAD "" manually. As I remember many of t...

Re: Learning English on the Speccy

Interesting thing that you say about dubbed films. In Poland we had and still have dubbed films in TV. The funny thing is that all dubbing is made by a single man who reads with a wooden voice without much emotion both male and female parts ;) But actually it works, you can hear original voices behi...

Re: Learning English on the Speccy

Yes, I learnt a lot of English from Spectrum games and later from PC games. A lot of new words. Often I didn't know how to say all these new words correctly and invented some my own pronounciations ;) For quite a lot of years I pronounced "delete" like "palette" not like "deeleet" for example. I can...

Re: The games that never got released

Personally I would quote completely the mentioned post and let everybody make his own mind about it.

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with X: vote

Hey people, why are you voting for some Xeno? What's that and what's so special about it? ;)

I voted for Xecutor. I believe I spent the most time with it, compared to other titles from the list. It's a decent,
colourful, fluent scrolling shootemup that I have good memories of.

Re: The year of the pig

On the other hand, Piggy is an absolute waste of code. There is another game called Piggy, coming from Czech Republic. Nice looking but very short: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=14542 https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/pub/sinclair/screens/in-game/p/Piggy_3.gif ------------------...
